כָל הַמְּקַיֵּים נֶפֶשׁ אַחַת מִיִּשְׂרָאֵל כְּאִילּוּ קִיֵּים עוֹלָם
וְאֵין אֶחָד מֵהֶן דּוֹמֶה לַחֲבֵירוֹ
בִּשְׁבִילִי נִבְרָא הָעוֹלָם
what is torahverse?
Traditional School Wasn't Getting what our children needed For today's world...So we are starting one that does.
We begin with the end in mind. The Hero’s Journey.
Learn to learn:
A child is given the mantle of personal responsibility to chart his or her own path with the opportunity to succeed and fail.
Learn to do:
They develop the independence of learning valuable life skills and middot (character-building) to prepare them for future challenges and opportunities.
Learn to be:
We provide the experience of the joy of belonging to a tight-knit Kehillah (community) of fellow travelers who are each finding their gifts in an environment adapted for the real world.
Begin an adventure that matters.
This is the Torahverse Hero’s Journey.
what will you witness?
Imagine a school with. . .
Self-paced, peer-to-peer, and group learning frees up adults for
Torah skills and learning Torah that is constantly challenging and relevant using Breakthrough Chinuch by Rabbi Rietti.
Math, reading, and writing programs with success across 280+ Acton Academy affiliates nationwide.
and so much more....
We believe childhood is about the discovery of self. Torahverse is a place where kids are free to be kids, while learning how to be kind, passionate, and powerful individuals capable of going out and changing the world all in alignment with Torah principles.
Students bring value to their peers and the outside world developing well-equipped skills to ideate and create for the future workforce.
Critical Thinking and Independence
Asking the right questions instead of dictating the right information opens children to follow their curiosity, powerfully express themselves, and tackle challenges.
Character and Self-Awareness
We respect the genius of each child and honor that by giving them meaningful choices with realizable implications for them and others.
Learning is more effective when failing cheaply and often is allowed so more sustainable success that matters to the child and the real-world can be achieved.
Results matter in all aspects of your child’s education.

Rabbi Bryan Chustckie
The first of a kind Rabbi who blends counseling, gamification, and rabbinic and pedagogical scholarship, with touches of techno and west coast vibes. With over 8 years of transforming his teaching discipline into an inspired and rigorous art of guiding children, he researched and developed various educational methods, and at last, the vision of a future school for the Jewish community has landed on earth. From the nascent desire for the school he wished he could attend as a child to his dream for a place for his children to someday embrace as their second home and school, he formed Torahverse.
